Program Information

Location: Most classes will take place at BRIT or at the FW Botanic Garden. Some classes and workshops will be taught off campus and/or may include field trips to other locations around North Central Texas.

Cost: Class tuition varies depending on the length of the class and materials needed. Please see the individual class listings for exact prices.

Who should attend: GROW Adult Ed classes are designed for adults 18 and older. Interested children 14 and older are invited to attend classes with a parent or guardian if both individuals purchase a seat. Please don't hesitate to contact Laura Venhaus if you have any questions about this policy.

Nice to Know: Since you never know where GROW Adult Ed might take you, we recommend that participants dress comfortably in clothes that are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor adventures. A sweater or light jacket is a good idea in case the A/C is working too well and closed toe shoes are always a good idea. Please check individual class listings for any specific requirements and, as always, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at a GROW Adult Ed class soon! 

Point of Contact

Laura Northern Venhaus

Community Education Manager

Join Master Gardeners for a hands-on class which will explore the unusual way in which ferns propagate, since they bear no flowers or seed pods. You will probe into this very primitive process of plant sexual reproduction. You will take home pots ready to bring the mystery of spore reproduction into its full glory from several ferns to add to your plant collection.

Instructors Richard Kurth, Karl Rosenboom, and Claudia Teague are Master Gardeners who love teaching hands-on classes in many areas of horticulture and gardening. They especially enjoy teaching spore propagation of ferns.

Please Note: This class will take place at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

$20 members/$25 non-members

Online registration for this class is now closed. A very limited number of seats will be available for walk up registration on Saturday.
